You know I mostly am listening to Soundboards circa 1973 so checking out a show from 81 is going to bump it down one star in a hurry but that said this is a diverse show.
Some nice double doses in Set one especially Cumberland>El Paso
Getting Bird Song and Let it Grow to close Set One is also none to shabby.
I like the way Shakedown is followed by Sailor>Saint. The jams are good thru-out Bob mangles the start of Sugar Magnolia but they make an earnest effort to shred thru-it.
Having just listened to many epic P.I.T.B's from the 73 era it is refreshing to hear them weave in and out of Playin' without getting lost and wandering into oblivion or Sea Stones of 74.
By 81 it is fairly clear that as Garcia goes so goes the band and check out Stella if you want to get a pulse on things here,, solid Stella!!!
Too me Indianapolis always seemed out in the middle of nowhere but hey what a better place for the circus to come to town...

Went to this show with a bunch of them in Kevin's truck.
Was going to other rock shows in Indy, usually once a month. Rock banks like Sabbath, Blue Oyster cult, etc...Frank Marino put on a killer show earlier that year.
Bear Force Security was always tough-frisking and confiscating. There was trash cans full of contriband such as pipes and baggies full of pot etc...at all rock shows.
But at this Dead show, they were lax. I didn't understand? Also, I didn't see any of the regular guys that were at the usual shows. No Wild Bill? Com'on.
Perplexed before music even began.
Music started and Mr. Natural kicked in shortly. Then stuff just started happening, not just onstage but all over the arena. No previous concert had moved me like this. 'Space through Wheel' kinda capped it off. 'Stella Blue' was mystical.
Music like this just wasn't possible I thought. They didn't play for me or at me, they played through me. This was unexplainable.
Thanks Pete, Mike, Basil, Dave and Kevin. You guys took a greenhorn and transformed his music taste forever!

Subject: Awesome Shakedown
The 12 minute Shakedown has Brent playing in fine form alongside Jerry's MIDI guitar. This is one of the best versions I've found here.
